3 Reasons its easier now than ever to install your own Submersible Well Pump
It’s easier than ever before to install your own well pump! It used to be that you had to pay top dollar to hire a pump contractor to install a submersible pump, but now with flexible poly pipe, lighter motors, and easy-to-assemble kits, it’s simple for you to install a solar pump yourself and save a bunch of money. Here are 3 reasons it’s now easier than ever!
#1 Flexible Poly Pipe
The magic of poly pipe is that it can be hose clamped to your pump and DIY installed easily by one or two people depending on the depth of well; it’s lighter, can be dropped by hand, and doesn’t corrode in your well. It gives you total control. Traditionally well pumps have been installed with rigid pipe, galvanized steel then PVC. The down side of both kinds of rigid pipe is that most of the time, a well owner will need a pro with a boom truck to pull or drop their pump, leaving them beholden to a contractor to help them.
#2 Helical & Brushless
More efficient pumping mechanisms and permanent magnet brushless motors mean you can pack more power into a more compact, lighter stainless barrel. Brushless motors can be up to 20% more efficient and helical positive displacement pump ends can keep water flowing almost twice as long per day. A smaller more efficient pump means it is a lot easier for you to drop it down the well yourself.
#3 DIY + RPS
Before RPS, installing a solar-powered pump yourself required you to either pay top dollar for a contractor to buy and install everything for you, or piecemeal a system together on your own with components found online. RPS provides a happy medium between the two. A combination of your great do-it-yourself skills combined with a full kit of RPS quality parts, our sizing and planning advice, YouTube videos, 32 page full-color install guide, Water Assurance Guarantee, and RPS engineers on the phone, text and email to back you up.
